This is the same rule we use in *S*, most of the time it will be me and maybe one other TC that have talked in the war rooms. All of our shooters no the rules and abide by them. I have been with UF since the first one in a different clan with Sniper. No one in the past has made comments regarding the rules, not to mention these rules were up for all to read prior to any clan being invited to the tournament. If you didn't think the rules were a good thing or something that was to strict, why did you join? I know of all the clans I have played with in UF wars in the past the mic was something that was left open for important information to be passed to either our own clan, or any other rule violations that we need the other clan to know about. If the mics are open then there should be no one talking when the countdown starts. The last word you will here from any *S* member will be "green up on me"
